We review recent advances in the generation, detection, and transmission of high spectral efficiency optical superchannels that utilize both orthogonal-frequency-division-multiplexing for optical carrier modulation and/or carrier multiplexing, and non-orthogonal approaches. Optical networking implications are addressed.
